Concert Music will reign in Cuba
By Ricardo Alonso Venereo
The best and most representative of classical music in Cuba will reign throughout November —as it happened in October with other bands. This time the Camerata Romeu —led by Zenaida Romeu— and the Vocal Leo Chamber Choir —celebrating its 25th anniversary under the direction of Corina Campos and guitar player Joaquin Clerch, who is celebrating 35 years of professional work— will be involved in national tours.
These new performances, as those carried out by the Chamber Orchestra Musica Eterna, led by Guido Lopez Gavilan, Leonor Suarez´s Camerata Vocale Sine Nomine, and the Oriente Symphony Orchestra, are organized by the National Center of Concert Music belonging to the Cuban Institute of Music with the purpose of taking their music to the people for their pleasure and cultural enrichment.
The Camerata Romeu will display its repertoire of Cuban and world music on November 1-12, in Santa Clara, Remedios, Matanzas, Mayabeque, Pinar del Rio, and Artemisa. Vocal Leo, November 1-17 will tour Camaguey, Ciego de Avila, Sancti Spiritus, Villa Clara, Matanzas, Pinar del Rio, Artemisa, and Havana at the Hispanic American Center of Culture, November 17, 17:00hrs.
At last, guitar player Joaquin Clerch will bring his art November 8-19 to Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba, Bayamo, Holguin, Las Tunas, Camaguey, Sancti Spiritus, Cienfuegos, Pinar del Rio, Artemisa, and Matanzas.
